Older players might get confused like your Sony. The worst that can happen is that they end-up playing the disc as though it was audio. That's bad for the ears, but not really bad for the player unless the volume is set really high - then watch out for the tweeters. The assumption here though, is that we're talking about discs that ARE encoded as audio. Why would anyone want to keep non-playable discs in their player for longer than it takes to realize they're non-playable? Cheers, Colin.
